jonathan karl tells us about the news today. >> reporter: by one count, president obama has already used unmanned cia drones to strike more than 300 suspected terrorist targets, even more than his predecessor. but today, we learned just how much authority the administration believes it has to kill, without trial or evidence, suspected terrorists, even american citizens. a newly disclosed justice department document says american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed, if, "an informed, high-level official believes the target poses an imminent threat." but the document says it "does not require the government to have clear evidence." case in point, anwar al awlaki, an american citizen and top al qaeda leader, linked to several terrorist attacks. he was killed in a 2011 drone strike. human rights advocates say the justice department memo goes way too far. and -- >> justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner. >> reporter: as soon as he became president, barack obama stopped cia tactics like waterboarding that he considered torture. but this j

assessment of what went wrong and what exactly happened. >> i know you're trying to get us the actual details here. what do we know about his girlfriend, reeva steenk. mp? . >> reporter: i was just on her twitter page and it's quite sad to read the twitter page of somebody who died just a few hours ago. on it she describes herself as a model, a law graduate and a child of god. what we do see through her twitter feed is that it appears she went to a promotional party last night for a car launch and a lot of people were excited. there's a picture of her up there. she's a very beautiful blond woman and she was also just recently in the celebrity pages of one of the sunday newspapers. the couple were a bit of a celebrity couple here in south africa. we do know that. in terms of what happened, what transpired, it's tragic either way. one family has lost a sister, a daughter, of course, oscar pistorius, the big question now is the implications for his career. he was supposed to race in march. it's highly unlikely he'll be taking to the track by then. >> do we know if steenkamp and pistorius lived t
. the source describes them as crude pipe bombs. one in the bunker and the other in the pipe that police used to communicate with jimmy lee dykes, who demanded two children on a school bus before killing the driver, charles poland. he wanted attention, even asking police negotiators for a tv reporter to interview him. by monday, when they saw dykes hold i holding a gun, using a secret camera they somehow had managed to sneak inside, they were ready. they swooped in, throwing a stun grenade down the bunker's hatch. the police source says dykes fired his gun once. the team returned fire, killing dykes and freeing ethan. ethan's mother said i woke up for the first time in almost a week to a beautiful sight, my sweet boy. i can't describe how incredible it is to hold him again. and today he celebrates his 6th birthday. >> he captured the hearts of all of us and we instantly fell in love with a little boy that we didn't even know his last name. >> reporter: initially planned as a prayer vigil, it turned into a celebration. >> oh, honey, we're celebrating everywhere. >> reporter: ethan is already o
